    Hi.
    Fasting blood glucose 5.6 at 7am today.

    I had a better night than I have had for some time but I tripled my intake of Eplerenone yesterday, which blocked more aldosterone receptors and cut the alkalosis.
    I also feel less tired and exhausted, the last year or two has been a struggle.
    (At c.£80 for a tab of 28 tablets three lots are quite expensive, but the NHS will pay, I worked for 44 years, so I deserve it! :) )

    Will be getting on to my Endo next week.
    and run it past my eldest later today, when we zoom.
    regards
    Derek
    Ps. I hope I have not missed out anyone who wished me well. Atb to all.

    A bad day at big rock - the loony could now Nominate and get through a conservative supreme court judge for life - not a good day for those living under his dictatorship.

    Just got back - it went swimmingly well. No wait longer than 3 minutes and most of the heard were compliant to simple instructions. Far easier than trying to shove a pill down the throat of a cat or clip it’s nails from all acounts.

    Hi A.A.
    You mentioned Robins the other day.
    I took this one the other day through the patio door window after cutting a hedge.

    Good evening all :)

    4.6 today

    a mixed day for weather, sunny but with banks of chilly mist rolling about the countryside :)

    we went over to Dornoch in the afternoon, first time we've been there in ages, just for a walk around the village, down to the beach and back across the golf course, some of the golfers looked a bit bemused, weird conditions where you could see the flags one minute then they would disappear into the mist :sorry:

    We had a coffee in a socially distanced cafe before coming home just to round out the trip :)

    Lots of visitors about but mostly being very good about leaving plenty of room to pass on the pavements etc. :)

    Hope your day is treating you well :)

    @HarryBeau - poor Charlie, hope things go well.

    @SlimLizzy - how are your cat healing endeavours going? sounds like a bit of a wrestling match :sorry:

    @ianpspurs - new car :joyful:

    @lindisfel - nice shot of the robin :)

    @gennepher - I'm taken with your squirrel, he looks so lively and inquisitive :)

    @dunelm - glad your task went well and I like your conifer trees and the nice sense of distance you've created :)

    @Alien Aspie - an interesting and expressive piece on RBG you've created, she's a real loss to Justice in America.

    @Muddy Cyclist - I like your sunset very much, such a lovely misty glow you've created. It amazes me how much you can create with such a little time :)

    Art bit -
    we have one of those rose bushes that produces big ornamental hips just by the fence, it's a bit invasive but so colourful this time of year :)

    I am mortified was not about much yesterday and did not see your post so did not contribute to the support you were in much need of I am glad that you are feeling much better now.

    My fbg yesterday was 5.3 today 4.9.

    My daughter's consultant has started her on prednisolone at 30 mg per day and thinks it is going to be long term I dread what it's going to do to her blood sugars.

    Spent most of yesterday sorting the back yard out no longer looks quite so much of a tip.

    @lindisfel my daughter is going to be so jealous of that fantastic photo as for days now she has been bemoaning the fact that there have been no robins around here to photograph.

    Thank you, John, please don't be mortified, friends make allowances for each other and I already know what kind of guy you are.

    I am sorry to hear your daughter has a long term health issue, hopefully they will find better treatments in time.
    Best wishes
    Derek

    Even at great age it is sad to lose a champion of the weak.

    Hope blood sugars settle once you get rid of the cold and that you don't feel too 'under the weather'.
    Sounds like yesterday was a good day. Hope you are enjoying driving the new car.

    When I posted this morning I said that I ate 14K calories a day.
    Not sure how 1400 calories a day became 14K - obviously a senior moment.

    Very emotional and apt art. Well done, the world needs messages to be heard and art is great way to do it.
